Yeah, if you're brewing with Pummel, since your stats are going to be capped any increase in damage is going to come from crits and DA/TA procs. So you'd want to use stuff like RR, GH, Apoc, Sanguine Scythe, Alpha and Omega. Only time I've ever brewed with Pummel is when we had a Raja fight going a little rough so I popped a brew and killed him off. I didn't have very good atma for it, but still won easily. As long as you don't heal her, should be fine to kill Rani with it too even if AE and appropriate atma may be even better.
For reference, I've never brewed Rani on PUP but have done so with Aeolian Edge on COR and won in under 90 seconds from near full health (one of the smoother runs I've seen on Rani though, got a nice yellow proc right after I started to lock her from casting and make it a lot easier to spam magical WS like mad). Gales/Ultimate/Beyond atma, MAB+/SC damage rolls, and little more MAB gear than PUP has access to - but for the most part any dagger user can get very similar results under brew. Did that Rani plus had time left to easily take out a Dragua popped by my LS under the same brew - froze my brew on the conflux, fluxed to them after they hit procs on Dragua.
